Discharging a Capacitor Lab Webster Gordon 5/20/08 Abstract: The purpose of this lab was to look at the discharging of capacitors and how they are changed by using different resistances. We had a circuit set up so that when a switch was thrown one way the capacitor would be charged to a determined voltage, and then when the switch was thrown the other way the capacitor would discharge into a

Unformatted text preview: resistor of adjustable resistance. It was hooked up to a voltage sensor so that a computer could graph the potential across the capacitor vs. time. We determined that with higher resistances it took the capacitor longer to discharge. The next step was to determine the capacitance of the capacitor we were using. We calculated it to be 6 .01092 7.6 10 F-....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
